Public Speaker

They call it stage presence: the ability to be yourself and make a connection with people—even a crowd of people—and seem comfortable the entire time. And a great presenter’s talent for conveying your points clearly and powerfully is useful everywhere, not just in politics or on the stage. Luckily, you don’t have to be born with these skills; you can develop them.

3. Find your voice
4. Choose or create a piece to perform
5. Get onstage!

When I’ve earned this badge, I’ll have found my inner performer and be unafraid to speak up.
